Following up on last week’s post: Job Opportunities in the Office of Tax Policy:
The Office of Tax Policy is looking to hire attorney-advisors in the Office of Tax Legislative Counsel (TLC), the Office of International Tax Counsel (ITC), and the Office of Benefits Tax Counsel (BTC), as well as a Deputy International Tax Counsel for Treaty Affairs. Our offices place a high value on diversity of experiences and perspectives and encourages applications from individuals from all ethnic and racial backgrounds, veterans, LGBTQ+ individuals, and persons with disabilities.
TLC is staffed by fewer than 20 lawyers and other advisors with specific subject matter expertise covering the spectrum of the U.S. domestic tax system, other than employee benefits and employment tax related tax matters. Attorney-advisors in the office shape policy and legal interpretations of the tax law through their work on regulatory and other administrative guidance projects and by providing technical assistance to congressional staff in drafting tax legislation. TLC is seeking attorneys with at least seven years of legal experience and significant experience in one of the following subject matter areas: taxation of individuals, estates, and trusts under federal income and transfer tax rules; rules related to charities and other exempt organizations, as well as state, local, or Indian tribal governments; taxation of partnerships, S corporations, or other pass-through business entities and their owners; and/or energy tax rules, especially with respect to renewable energy incentives.
ITC is staffed by fewer than 15 lawyers and other advisors that develop and review policy and legal matters addressing all aspects of the U.S. international tax system. For new attorney-advisors, ITC is looking for attorneys with at least five years of legal experience in the field of international taxation, however no specific experience in any subspecialty of international tax is required. For the Deputy ITC for Treaty Affairs position, ITC is looking for an attorney with at least seven years of legal experience in the field of international tax, with significant experience with respect to the interpretation and understanding of U.S. income tax treaties and other intergovernmental agreements related to the exchange of information, as well as experience in negotiating agreements more broadly.
BTC is staffed by fewer than 10 lawyers and other advisors with specific subject matter expertise in retirement, health care, executive compensation, and other employee benefits, as well as employment tax. Like TLC and ITC, the BTC staff shape policy and legal interpretations of the tax law through their work on regulatory and other administrative guidance projects and by providing technical assistance to congressional staff in drafting tax legislation. BTC is seeking attorneys with at least five years of legal expertise and significant experience in employment taxes and executive compensation.
